ORIGINAL REPORT AT 9:05AM

A cloudy day for the most part yesterday with some blue sky on show at times, but no snow unfortunately.

This morning is thankfully a colder than yesterday and there's been a very slight dusting of snow but and we are expecting snowfall from late morning today and the chance of snow daily into next week. It's really not looking like anything really significant though which is what we really need right now. But, forecasts have been wrong so lets hope they are underestimating this time too.

Niseko Hanazono have their planned opening tomorrow, but they have not yet announced exactly what will be open - I'll update this page later today when we get that news...
